How do you get WD40 out of clothing?

My sons favorite sweatshirt got WD40 soaked on the sleeve. I've tried soaking it in Oxyclean overnight but that didn't do it. Any ideas?

if it is an oil based stain it comes out with borateem and detergent with the hottest water you can use on that fabric. my husband can make the biggest mess of his jeans, he doesn't know what a shop rag is for, and i use 1/2 cup borateem with 1/2 cup gain or tide detergent and very hot water. good luck (09/06/2006)

My father.. a mechanic used to have a product called "Brake Clean" it was a brake cleaner for cars. It worked like magic on a black grease stain that I once got on my new red wool coat. It worked by just spraying it on and then the stain was gone! High fumes though, you'd have to use it outside!

I sprayed Simple Green on, washed in cold water and the WD40 came right out. Be sure to check before you put it in the dryer. (09/06/2006)

I've never tried it but have heard that pine sol removes grease stains on clothing. (09/06/2006)

---> WD40 is oil based, Shampoo is meant to get rid of oil from your hair. Cheap Shampoo may strip you hair, it also "strips" the WD40 right out of your clothes! (09/06/2006)
